We have a 3 yr. old basset. We took her in to the vet Saturday for her yearly shots. About an hour later she was scratching her face. Her face began to swell extremely. To the point that her eyes were almost shut. She began to fall asleep as we took her to emergency -- why?
Sounds like a possible vaccine reaction which is rare. Usually it is easily treated with cortisone and/or anti-histamines. Make sure you inform your vet about the "reaction" in order to help prevent it next time your pet is due for vaccines. vetcare
